"...even my conditioning's been conditioned..."

And now...the movie '12 Years a slave'.
Recently, a fellow blogger criticized me for being too hard on white people.
This person suggested that I concentrate on speaking about how badly Black people treat each other instead of railing against covert and overt white bigots.
Well, if he thinks I'm being too tough on whitey, movies like the ones I mention above, are the reason why.
Now, we're encouraged to talk about Black people and how cruel we are to one another, but no one wants to talk about how we as a people, got to such a place of self hatred in our communities.
We all need to realize that beyond the decades of conditioning Black people endure to get them to hate themselves, which is conditioning no other ethnic group in this world gets by the way, that movies like the ones I mention above are 'triggering instruments' to keep us mired in the paradigm of white supremacy.
And the reason these movies are being pumped out year after year right now, is to thwart the idea that we as Black people, should feel proud to have a Black man as the american president.
And again, there's an almost knee-jerked reaction some people have when anyone refers to Barack Obama as Black, that has them telling you he's got a white mother.
But, as I've mentioned before, I never heard of a 'Teabagger' until Obama was president; and I don't remember white supremacist websites crashing due to an overwhelming influx of traffic until Obama was president either.
Now, the movie '12 years a slave' is supposedly a true story about a Black man named Solomon Northup from upstate New York, who visits the antebellum south as a free Black man, and how during his visit, he's wrongly abducted and sold into slavery.
Now, beyond the film's slave narrative, this movie's main plot point, speaks to an idea white supremacists are interested in mainstreaming.
What this film's really saying is, white elites want us reeled in from our thinking we can survive and thrive without them, back into the bondage of good ole' christian negro programming that made us revere them like gods. Thus, the free man (Solomon) goes back to the slave owning south and is captured, basically saying in a way, he wanted to be captured; whitey's sublimely intimating, how subconsciously, Solomon would feel better not having to think for himself living in captivity. Basically, he'd be happier being a slave, whether he knows it or not; and so would the overwhelming majority of the Black Diaspora. That includes YOU too! This movie also triggers the 'shame paradigm' that's been bred into us, so we can continue feeling inferior to whitey all our lives at the mere mention of slavery.
So, they're putting out propaganda films disguised as family entertainment, just so we Black folks can long for the good ole' days when we looked to them for every answer to our questions.
I remember the post I put out about that craptastic film 'The Butler', and some Black guy told me that my critique of the film wasn't valid because I basically said the film was used to portray Obama as a butler or a 'servant', rather than the president.
He went on to tell me that Obama's a lackey for white supremacists and the movie portrayed white presidents as friends to Black people.
Now, this observation tells me that he probably paid money to go see this film, or paid money for a bootleg copy of it.
So, even 'conscious' Black people are going to see these flicks.
I remember one 'conscious' Black person I saw on YouTube, said in their video that they couldn't stand Quentin Tarantino, but went to see 'Django Unchained' five times, 'cause their friends were seeing it.
These are the dumbfounding effects of the brainwashing Black folks get in this country.
So I'm saying again, if you're a 'conscious' Black person, or an independently minded one at least, stop supporting these cavalcade of stars coon shows.
And you see this one has Brad Pitt and Micheal Fassbender in it. Just to make the poison a little sweeter.
And this movie was directed by a Black brit I respected, Steve McQueen. He made a terrific movie called 'Hunger' about a prison's hunger strike in ireland.
And supposedly, he's suppose to direct a 'biopic' about Fela Kuti, the revolutionary Nigerian singer.
Well, I hope that film turns out better than this one.
But since Steve has shown he's a stooge for white supremacists and their agenda, when that flick comes out, I'll be sure to miss it.
And it's reactions like this, that will ultimately mark the 'unmaking' of a slave.
And that's something Black people desperately need to show the powers that be in this country and abroad.
